Italy coach Cesare Prandelli is sweating on Friday's World Cup draw.

Prandelli admits he's nervous ahead of the big lottery.

"If we had been top seeds, then we would've been happier, but perhaps it could be better this way considering our character," said Prandelli at the Italian Football Hall of Fame event.

"Italy did very well in the group phase, qualifying with two games to spare, something that had never happened before.

"Of course, the way FIFA work out the seeding should probably be revised, because now we are in quite a difficult position for the draw."
